Hello I am Fatmata. I expose the theory of not abolishing private schools. My main points that I am going to be expanding are:

- Private schools allow children to actually learn, something you cannot always do in state schools due to the fact that private schools aren't for children that don't want to learn. Parents actually pay so that children can learn.

-Private schools save the government taxes. Private schools fund them selves by the parents paying for them.

Private schools are schools that parents pay for so that their child can learn. Private schools have not a lot of children in their class so the less children in the class the more each child gets to learn.

State schools are funded by the government. So children can easily get applied there, even children who do not want to be there. Private schools allow parents to pay for good education.

Thank You for this debate,

I disagree with your statement. Just because 1 student doesn't show the interest in learning it does not mean it effects the entire classroom. Teachers usually will have accommodations for those who are excelling in class, and for those who are struggling.

I also would like the brief that Private schools charge parents heavily on tutiton . Most parents are hit with numerous fees that only a high class family can afford. Why? because private schools must generate their own funding, which typically comes from a variety of sources: tuition; private grants; and fundraising from parents, alumni, and other community members.

Most public schools have programs these days like International Baccalaureate, which are designed for academically gifted schools. So parents don't have to send their kids to Private schools, because public schools already offer many different programs.

Hi your argument makes sense, but I am telling you now that it is not only one child not misbehaving in certain lessons, children might be intimidated due to the fact they don't want to go to school. Parents should have the rights to pay for whatever they want so I really don't see how your point is valid to our motion.

Private schools do have trips and program that children attending the school could go to.

Like I said before, public schools already offer various different programs. It is unnecessary for parents to send their kids to private school. If parents want their child to have a better education, they can pay for it from the different programs available. In argument 1, you said, "State schools are funded by the government. So children can easily get applied there, even children who do not want to be there." Well, putting them in a private school would prove to have even more negative effects. The child might easily be intimidated by other children, because private schools set a higher standard than public schools. Public schools do have specialized programs that are designed for children who are misbehaving. Teachers in private schools are more likely to ignore the troubles that other kids have, compared to their counterparts.

Private schools also have no law that stops an untrained individual from being a teacher. You aren't guaranteed to have a qualified teacher in a classroom.

You said that public schools already offer various different programs, so it unnecessary for parents to send their children to private schools, you fail to see the advantages for a private school pupils who attend a private school their graduates are more likely than their peers from public schools to have completed advanced-level courses in three academic subject areas (see table), this is because less intimation of students who don't want to be in school.

Better education cannot always come from programs, parents shouldn't be dependent on these things, when you can get the "full package" from private schools.You also made another point: "Private schools also have no law that stops an untrained individual from being a teacher. You aren't guaranteed to have a qualified teacher in a classroom." This could be the case but private schools are better than public schools so public schools are more likely to have an untrained teacher because private schools have more graduates.

Kids who are in different programs rarely interact with mainstream students(except for electives). It essentially is like a small private school within the public school."this is because less intimation of students who don't want to be in school". Kids in those programs do not have that problem because they have no reason to be intimidated. These programs have set standards for which kids are allowed to attend and which are not. In private schools, you could easily enroll by paying fees. Most private schools rarely look at the academic accomplishments of other students.

"This could be the case but private schools are better than public schools so public schools are more likely to have an untrained teacher because private schools have more graduates". It is impossible that a public school has an untrained teacher. Why? because the law has certain requirements in which the individual much have, in order to apply for a job at the school in the first place.
